Abstract

Home cleaning robots have become popular. Most of the home cleaning robots are based on ground vehicles. While the cleaning robots based on ground vehicles can vacuum or wash floors robustly and efficiently, but they only clean on floors, not on stairs or furnitures. In this demo, we show a new concept of cleaning robot, called HoppingDuster. HoppingDuster is based on an aerial vehicle, which can y to stairs or furnitures to be cleaned, and hop or hover to wipe or blow down dust on them toward the floor so that the ground cleaning robot can vacuum the dust. HoppingDuster adapts its behavior to finish it cleaning within designated time and battery capacity.
